How to chose the right size golf glove

Why getting the right size glove is important

 

Fit is everything when it comes to golf gloves. Too big, and it could cause unnecessary rubbing and soreness. Too tight and the glove could tear. 

And, as your golf glove gets a lot of use, and is an important component for controlling your club during your swing, it’s important you get the right one for you.

The vast majority of golfers actually buy gloves that are not the right size of them. So, we’ve put this guide together to help you choose the right size, and your glove may last a little longer.

How to measure your hand

To understand what size glove you are, you will need to make two hand measurements. 

One, measure from the crease in your wrist, just below the palm of your hand, to the top of your middle finger. This will give you the measurement for the length of your hand. 

Two, measure circumference of your hand starting and finishing at the knuckles on the back of your hand. This will give you an idea on the width of your hand. 

We recommend using a textile measuring tape so you can easily wrap it around your hand to get an accurate measurement. 

What should the fit feel like? 

It’s important that your glove fits without any excess material at the end of your fingers, or sagging on the back or palm of your hand. You want your glove to feel tight, but not restrictive. 

Further tips for buying the right gloves

  • Remember to measure the hand you will wear the glove on. If you are a right handed golfer, measure your left hand. Lefty’s, your right hand
  • Premium leather like ours will give a little and mould to your hand over time, so factor this into your decision.
  • If you’re in between sizes go for the smaller size.
  • Poor care will alter the condition of the glove and may change how it fits your hand over time. Always keep your glove flat in a separate holder when not in use, to maintain its supple condition for longer.
